As the New York inspired menu comes to a close, Six by Nico restaurants are set to offer diners a new menu inspired by a favourite children's novel.

From 12th November, Six by Nico will take diners down the rabbit hole as The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party menu arrives at restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Guests are invited to follow chef Nico Simeone into Wonderland, and escape reality with an eccentric menu themed around one of the most well-known children’s tales of all time.

Inspired by the whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland, The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party menu will recall childhood tales with a colourful feast, fine dining style.

The new menu will have quirkiness and peculiarity at its heart, just like the famous Mad Hatter character.

Guests dining at Six by Nico do not require shrinking to three inches, need to answer baffling riddles, or encounter psychedelic Cheshire cats as Chef Nico Simeone and his team introduce The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in a much more digestible way.

True to the mind-altering fantasy, The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party six course tasting menu includes: Eat Me, Drink Me- Mushroom consommé, empire biscuit, parmesan truffle, white kappa and quince; Chester Cat Copy Cat – Chicken liver parfait, orange jelly, toasted sourdough.

This is followed by Steak Tartare – goats cheese panna cotta, green olive tapenade, tomato tartare, yoghurt yolk; Checkmate- Sole, black garlic emulsion, cauliflower, lemon verbena foam; Off with his Head – pork fillet, head croquette, black pudding, roasted carrot, spiced prune.

The six course menu finishes with a decadent dessert, Queen of Hearts- white chocolate mousse, red velvet cake, raspberries, pecan brittle.

 

Chef Nico Simeone said: “If you’re after a magical food adventure then our latest theme at Six by Nico is for you.

“Guests throughout November and the festive period will be transported down the rabbit hole to enjoy our whimsical dining experience as we present the magical world of Alice in Wonderland with our Mad Hatters Tea Party.”

The menu is priced at £29 per person with the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine and specialist drinks pairing for an additional £26 at each restaurant.

As ever, there is a vegetarian alternative available for every course, as well as wacky ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ inspired snack side.

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will run from 12 November until 5 January and bookings can be made now from Tuesday – Sunday in Finnieston, Glasgow and Hanover Street in Edinburgh as well as every Friday – Sunday at the new Six by Nico Southside with each six-course tasting menu available from noon.
